About Lynn Groce

Retired couple. Lived overseas for many years. Now living in Louisville. We love walking in the neighborhood, visiting Louisville's famous parks and attending local events. We decided it would be nice to share our big home with someone who wants to enjoy the same things we get to enjoy here in our great city.

Lynn Groce purchased this house in 2008

Why Lynn Groce chose Beechmont

Our home is so close to Louisville's great options for entertainment. We lived in Africa where there was no chance for many of the things we take for granted in city life here. We have enjoyed so much our turn of the century home renovated by others. The home has had only 4 owners who lovingly cared for it.

Location with Amazing Owners !!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lynn and Suzanne's home for the Oaks and Kentucky Derby. The home was well represented with the description and pictures on the listing. Lynn and Suzanne were easy to work with, great to answer questions and quick to respond. They were warm and welcoming making you feel comfortable in their home. The location is one mile from Churchill Downs and can be walked. There are grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants close by (3 miles). The home is a short distance to downtown and the airport. Allowing you to enjoy all that Louisville has to offer. The main part of the home was built in the 1900's and has a beautiful large front porch on it. It is in an established neighborhood with beautiful tree lined streets and an old carriage road that runs in front of the home eliminating unwanted traffic. Plenty of space in the home and a dinning room and living room that is able to handle larger groups comfortably. Lynn and Suzanne were excellent host and went over the house with us to insure we had everything we needed. It could not have been a better experience and the Derby wasn't bad either!

Unbelievable Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house that was everything and more from what we were expecting. Lynn and Suzanne were unbelievable hosts and were very welcoming... Made us feel right at home from the second we arrived!! They took time to show us all the ins and outs of the house as well as giving us great recommendations of some great restaurants, coffee shops, and places to see. The location of the house is perfect for everything in and around Louisville and would definitely recommend for other travelers!

Perfect Location

Great house and even better location! Churchhill Downs and a local coffee shop were just a short walk away. Also loved the kitchen and large dining room for hosting.
